GSA exempts small businesses from eligibility... How does this equal jobs...?

The Small Business Administration exempts small businesses from over $100 billion worth of federal contracts and the GSA exempts small businesses from eligibility for over $40 billion worth of federal contracts each year.

The SBA has a policy of excluding small businesses from eligibility for $100 billion worth of federal contracts from the acquisitions budget, which violates the congressional intent of the Small Business Act, which clearly states that small businesses must receive 23 percent of 'total federal prime contracts'.

Federal regulators exempt GSA Schedule contracts from small business set-aside, despite congressional mandate in the Small Business Act, which states that all federal acquisitions in the simplified acquisition threshold (contracts valued between $3,000 and $150,000) must be set-aside for small businesses. The SBA and FAR council essentially repealed this valuable piece of legislation by exempting all acquisitions on the GSA schedule from small business set-asides.

One way to get involved...
